Fruit Garden

I have a plot which has an apple tree, raspberries and rhubarb in it.   I want to add some blackcurrant bushes but not sure if they will thrive with the competition.  Any advise here welcome.

    IT DEPENDS HOW MUCH SPACE YOU HAVE.

    ONE BLACKCURRANT BUSH WILL GROW ABOUT SIX FEET TALL AND NEED A WORKING SPACE OF ABOUT THE SAME, I.E. YOU NEED A SIX FOOT SQUARE SPACE IN WHICH TO GROW AND TEND ONE.

    THEY DON’T NEED A LOT OF SUN THOUGH.

    Ben Connan and Ben Sarek are smaller varieties, but still need around 4-5ft between bushes.
